    It's not BS reporting, although I would not be surprised if anti-Clinton Dems were behind the story.

    A High level Government official Setting up a personal Email server for the purpose of circumventing FOIA and Oversight Committee request is something worthy of investigation and should be reported on.
    But they alleged she broke the law in doing so - which ones? And how did her behavior differ from previous SoSs? If she circumvented FOIA and Oversight Committee requests, that's a different story. The email story didn't even pretend to demonstrate any of that - it's an assumption with no facts to back it up. Those kinds of allegations are fine for a blogger without editors and fact checkers and sources, but not for the NYT or AP.

    That old hag, how could she be so stupid to believe this would never surface for all the world to see? It proves beyond any debate she has less regard for the rules of our constitution than Monica's lover. Yet, she will continue to be a leader for the nomination because the party like the Republicans is without a viable nominee. If there is one single reader that does not believe she will not rip the constitution to shreds if she is president then that one person be damned to be stupid forever.

    Additionally, both the policy of the State Department and Obama Administration Counsel guidance stated to use official government addresses/equipment.
    I haven't looked up the history of that part of the law, but the legal issue if there is one is that her personal email wasn't timely (?) transferred to a state dept server, not that she used a personal email account. The original stories misled readers on all of that and certainly didn't even bother to do what you did - which was reference a specific law that Hillary was alleged to have skirted/broken.

    It was incredibly sloppy at a minimum for the NYT and AP to run what they did. They didn't meet basic standards for a story of such high profile.

    And you might be right about "anti-Clinton Dems" being behind it. If this was planted by someone, it's even more inexcusable that NYT and AP would run with it without doing basic fact checking and editing before making what were pretty explosive allegations. They're not bloggers.

    I don't think the story was all that sloppy, but then my expectations for the NYT are not high. I remember too well their thoroughly fictional hit piece about McCain's non-existent "affair." Since the anti-Hillary left is based in the journalist/literary/artistic wing of the Dem party, a story fed to the NYT seems like a natural fit.

    They are trying to nudge Hillary out of the way, to get the left wing kook Pocahontas to run.

    I can't take credit for this, but didn't Petraeus just plead guilty to a single count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material? I wonder how many classified documents were removed by Hillary to her home?
